    Nixon Corporal SS Matte Black/Industrial Green

    The Corporal is the enlarged version of Nixon Private. The same no-nonsense, military-inspired design but in a much larger, dinner-plate 48mm case. The new stainless steel Matte Black/Industrial Green colorway pushes the already minimalist motif of these two lines further with a blackout treatment, accented with tasteful shades of green.

    Here's the unboxing shots from earlier today.

    Priority Mail 2-day delivery actually took barely a day.

    Brown-bagged contents

    ...Peeked at

    Outer slip cover with Nixon logo on top

    ...And product ID on side

    ...Holds the inner slide case

    A stylish presentation

    ...For an even more stylish piece inside

    Black and green do go well together

    Hands of beauty

    At 23mm, the straight, non-tapered bracelet is actually 1mm narrower than the smaller Private's.

    While the dished bezel might provide some protection for the crystal, its own upper edge seems vulnerable to dings.

    Nicely sculpted lugs and sides

    There's a well-hidden Nixon logo on the enameled crown top

    The first lume shot. Fully lumed second hand is a rare treat. The NIXON logo is lumed as well here, but not on the Matte Black/Camo Private that I also have. Real life lume is not as bright nor is it very long-lasting at all, making this a good candidate for an expert relume job. But who can I trust it to for that?
